From being a shadow side to their famous city rivals Real Madrid, Atletico have come a long way to achieving glory under current manager Diego Simeone. With recent wins against Real Madrid and also staying ahead in the title race on the points table, Atletico have covered some serious distance considering their lack of spending prowess compared to Real Madrid and Barcelona. However one thing that Atletico have maintained over the years is their rich history of churning up the best and greatest strikers in the world. The likes of Sergio Aguero, Diego Forlan, Fernando Torres, Radamel Falcao, Diego Costa, David Villa and the most recent Antoine Griezmann. Every time a star player left, they somehow managed to create another brilliant one. Their goalkeepers have also been the best in the business; notable mentions would be Thibaut Courtois and David De Gea.
